Item description for Jesus, M.D.: A Doctor Examines the Great Physician by David Stevens MD & Gregg Lewis...
Overview An experienced medical missionary takes readers on "rounds" with the Great Physician using his professionally trained eye to observe scriptural snapshots of Jesus the Healer at work, and weaves his dramatic real-life accounts from his own experiences with biblical stories.
Jesus--the ultimate doctor. His touch extended grace to the sick and sinful of ancient Palestine and left a miracle in its wake. And his ministry hasn t ceased. Today, he looks for willing hearts and hands through which he can heal a needy world. Dr. David Stevens knows. His eleven years at Tenwek Hospital in Kenya have shown him more than the drama and sacrifice of missionary medicine. In Jesus, M.D. Dr. Stevens shares the insights he has gained into the character, power, and purposes of the Great Physician and what it means for you to follow in his footsteps. This is more than a book of dramatic, true-life stories. It is an inspiring and challenging invitation to partner with Jesus in his "practice," accompanying him on his rounds to people whose lives he wants to make whole. Discover how to participate with him in bringing his healing touch to your corner of the world. You don t need a medical education--just determination to trust God as your "attending physician," your mentor, your source of guidance, discipline, and encouragement. Dr. Stevens takes you inside stories from the Bible to obtain challenging perspectives and life-changing truths. You ll also get an inside look at life-or-death surgeries; the tense, powerful relationship between resident and attending physicians; the overcrowded patient quarters of a missionary hospital; what it s like to improvise an emergency facial reconstruction; and much more. Best of all, you ll gain surprising insights from the life and methods of Jesus, the ultimate doctor, in his ministry to desperately needy people two thousand years ago . . . and today. Electrifying, moving, and thought-provoking, Jesus, M.D. will help you see your relationship with God and your world in a brand-new light. Your life is filled with incredible possibilities waiting to unfold one by one as you walk in the presence and provision of Dr. Jesus."

great read! Sep 25, 2005
Dr. Stevens tells stories from the mission field of Tenwik Hospital in Africa. His stories are riveting, but they are used as illustrations of spiritual truths. I read the book aloud to my family, and we were all fascinated. The book is true to the Bible and vivid because of the life stories from Dr. Stevens' medical experience.
A awesome book Aug 21, 2005
This book well worth it for any Christian, but a must for any Christian looking to go into the medical field.
A must read! Aug 27, 2004
I came acroos this book and have found it fascinating and extremely helpful. Although not a Physician, I am a paramedic who has daily contact with ill, wounded, and broken people. This book has deepened my compassion for them and helped me focus on what my purpose is in life. I highly recommend it to anyone in the health care field. It's principles are broad enough that those outside of the medical field will also find it refreshing.
Excellent May 2, 2004
The art of mixing faith and medicine is clearly defined
Wise and compelling May 25, 2001
I began to read this book out of duty: I am a pastor and a massage therapist, I have an interest in the spirituality of healing, and I try to keep up with what's written on the subject. Much of it is dreadful. Twenty pages into this book, and I was hooked. It has wonderfully icky medical stories. It has spiritual insights (from a style of spirituality very different from my own). It has a flavor of humble honesty. It has very funny moments. I was surprised: I love it. I'm buying a stack for presents.
